Lazio and Inter Milan are set for a face-to-face encounter at the Stadio Olimpico that will determine the last Italian side to feature the Champions League next year. Both sides were presented with a unique opportunity of eliminating all doubts last weekend, as the Nerazzurri lost to Sassuolo at home, while the Biancocelesti failed to get all three points on the road against Crotone, making this the most valuable game of the entire season. Luciano Spalletti’s team have one clear objective in their mind, defeating the Rome giants at all costs, but the former Zenit manager has to solve some critical issues in his backline if aiming to deny the likes of Milinkovic-Savic and Felipe Anderson. It’s fair to say that Ciro Immobile’s injury initiated some weak Lazio’s performance over the last few weeks as Caicedo proved to be the unreliable substitution, but there would be no excuses if the Eagles fail to capitalize on this remarkable opportunity. In case the Black and Blues leave the Stadio Olimpico empty handed it would be a massive disappointment taking into account the ambitions of the wealthy Chinese owners.
Marco Parolo, Luis Alberto, Jordan Lukaku, and Ciro Immobile will all remain on the sidelines due to injuries, while the visitors have their best players fit and ready for the big showdown.
